what color is the blood - bright reddish is usually a sign on straining or constipation - one of my cats had that issue and when she couldn't poop didn't eat at all.

see attache picture of the blood. note: pic is from aug 17 which is last time i seen blood in his pooh

i was feeding him ultra premium cat food and it was giving him diarrhea in my opinion because it was too rich. so i went down to a lower priced food and since then haven't seen the blood.

my concern is that he is not eating at all for 2 days. he always eats his food immediately

If you can't wait until morning to see your vet, take him to the emergency vet. Not sure where you're located, so can't suggest a location.

No one on an online forum can/will properly diagnose what the issue is.

If your cat is not eating and has bloody diarrhea then something is wrong and the cat will need a veterinarian to diagnose what is wrong, it could have a foreign body or be constipated or any other number of issues. After two days of not eating, dehydration and hepatic lipidosis are also serious concerns.

Go to a vet ASAP.

Definitely take your cat to the vet, don't wait for too long. If possible, you should also hydrate your cat - we used plastic syringe (avail in most pet stores) to feed our cat with liquid supplement and water through its mouth. All the best for your cat!

Agreed on the vet. If you can't go tonight for some reason, you need to assist-feed your cat! A cat can't go for two days without eating. You need to get a big-a$$ syringe and emulsify his food and hold him and get him to eat it with the syringe. Don't put it directly down his throat, but more against his cheek as it's going down. He needs to get to a vet AND he needs to eat!

It's part of pet ownership to have the cat check so what did the vet do did he do a blood test?
